Yes, Helen, you are right about it (below) being G. cinereum 'Alice' - well done!  Looks like I bought it in 2008.

Lori, both Alice and Memories are beautiful.
I have never seen either of them offered around here, I think I am living in the wrong place for sure.
Would love some G. farreri seeds if you can grab some.

Btw, did your traversii make it through winter last year?
Both of mine bit the dust, I suspect I will lose a lot more this winter, it was such a wet Autumn with lots of freeze/thaws.

Here's a couple of my G. nanums, both grown from seed.

G. traversii (var. elegans in my case) didn't winter over for me either.  Oh well, it's always worth a shot.

G. nanum looks really nice and very tiny.

Magnificent vista!!  :o

Some great pics of Geraniums everyone.  The cinereums are very rarely seen in my neck of the woods unfortunately, as the flowers are excellent.  Still quite a few hardy Geranium species in my garden though.  8)

'Rothbury Gem' is one of my favourites! A Geranium cinereum hybrid from my friend, Cyril Foster, in Rothbury, Northumberland, UK.

Looks like a winner, especially if it stays that small!
